I pressed the "new" rotor with new bearings and end bells into the "new" stator and it is finally acceptable. the only problem is that the bearings are a teeny bit loose on the shaft.
I'll use some LocTite to fix that until I am inspired to get different bearings (not any time soon).
A few hours and some hammered black paint on the "new" end bells and it will be time to build a table a tune up a RAS.
All in good time...
